Green Adhesives in Furniture and Buildings

Detmold, February 17, 2023—At this year’s leading trade fairs Ligna and Interzum, the adhesive manufacturer Jowat will put the spotlight on the major role played by modern adhesives in sustainable manufacturing processes and industrial products.

Sustainability has many different facets. Companies who want to make their processes and products greener need extensive expertise in that field and a 360-degree look at the issue. The same requirements apply for the use of modern adhesives. The development of new adhesives based on renewable raw materials and the expansion of a sustainable product portfolio are key focuses of the innovation and technology leader Jowat. As leading adhesive supplier to the furniture industry, Jowat has established its Green Adhesives—a complete package of trailblazing adhesives coupled with comprehensive services—to make bonding applications in furniture and buildings more sustainable, taking into account a wide range of aspects.

The green product portfolio is tailored to match all focus areas: renewable raw materials, employee and consumer safety, and resource conservation. Therefore, the GROW product family supplies a broad spectrum of adhesives based on biological or recycled materials. Reactive PUR hot melt adhesives with hazard-free labeling from the Jowatherm-Reaktant® MR series promote safety at the workplace and prevent costs for the additional training of processors prescribed in the EU. Special hot melt adhesives with low processing temperatures and high yield facilitate resource-saving manufacturing processes, and low-emission adhesives promote consumer safety.

Jowat Green Adhesives provide a benefit not only to companies in the furniture industry, but also to manufacturers of building elements and construction materials. They are powerful adhesives which facilitate sustainable and efficient construction and refurbishment due to their wide range of applications—fully in line with in the spirit of the European Green Deal.

The Green Adhesives to be showcased at the interzum and LIGNA trade fairs provide a sample of the powerful adhesive range and worldwide renowned service of the adhesives expert Jowat and demonstrate that sustainable bonding applications are readily available and reliable.
